Witness appeal after disorder in Burnham-on-Sea

We’re appealing for witnesses after two incidents of disorder in Burnham-on-Sea.

We were initially called to reports of an altercation involving a large group of people on Marine Drive at approximately 3.30am on Sunday 14 July. When officers arrived at the scene, several of the group made off.
